THE pro, in this club, not country club, mind you, can be a real jerk, and amazingly, he is booked. The bulk of his students are women over 40, 3.0 to 4.5 at best, and he coaches our team and others. Of his five or six teams, we are one of the lowest levels...3.5 usta. YET, we are the only one that continues to WIN. AND, he can be such a jerk to us...demeaning stares when we miss a feed, today, he threatened push-ups for all of us for 'not getting' what he was saying. Truth is, we get it, we try, we are just not athletically where he expects we should be. We win, we work and play hard, we are respectful, and I am at the point of telling him to KISS my 3.5 ***. We pay him, and I could understand if we treated him like he was a ball machine, just feeding to us, but we really work and are attentive during his 2 hour drill. He get $200 for the 10 of us weekly...my point is, yes, I think I learn more from him than from anyone else I take with...strategy only, no stroke info, but that is tough unless individual or very small group...but, I am SICK of his attitude toward us. It is like he 'shows off', as today there was another team of his on the next court, and he was so abusive in his manner and word....'I just don't know if I care about you guys anymore", 'if you miss a feed, be ready to do laps" exasperated looks when we miss a tough shot, or don't take the ball before the bounce. In truth, he has good stuff, and I know he will fill our spot in no time, I don't know, just wondering if this is the norm?? I can see a hs coach, but, I would love to push him off his high horse, but, he does teach great strategy.
